Preditors & Editors Awards—Rock Crazy Cover Art Makes Top Ten!
& Editors Readers Polls are like the People’s Choice Awards of books.Notice, I said books, not literature.I don’t think there is a people’s award for
literature.Mark Twain once said, “The classics
are books everyone wants to say they’ve read, but no one actually wants to
what I want to write.I don’t want kids
a hundred years from now lamenting, “I’ve gotta read Weber this semester.”
“Aw, man, I
had to read her last year.Watch the
holo and I’ll lend you my Cliff’s notes.”Note to anyone who’s reading this while you’re still in school:The movie version of The Grapes of Wrath
stops about two-thirds of the way through the book.I know it’s a tough read, but have tissue at
the end.I cried my eyes out.It was even more powerful than Tom Joad’s soliloquy
when he leaves the family.
quite have the guts to nominate Rock Crazy itself.I don’t know if people nominate their own
books for the P&E awards.It’s not
like you pay a fee and send in your manuscript for this competition.But I’ve always thought Delilah K. Stephans
did an incredible job with my cover art and I was amazed none of the other
MuseItUp authors had nominated her for their cover art this year, so I
did.Then I announced it on the Muse
lists, Facebook and Twitter and kind of forgot about it.So you can imagine my amazement when I opened
the announcement from our Publisher, Lea Schizas, saying the cover art for Rock
Crazy came in eighth!
congratulations, Delilah!And thank you
for such beautiful, award-winning cover art!
